The new lobby is a connector piece to a new sky bridge linking the new Eccles Primary Children’s Outpatient Services Building to Primary Children’s Hospital.  Creativity turned the utilitarian function into a striking new hospital entry. From the bridge, guests are greeted with a welcoming grand staircase that overlooks the main lobby. Leaf shapes float from the ceiling, a treehouse emerges, fish and turtles swim through the floor, and grasses seem to float in the wind. Natural elements bring calm and serenity and are delivered at a playful scale readily engaging the hospital’s young patrons. From a functional aspect, the lobby also ties together a new welcome and security desk, gift shop, and café.

BRIDGE TO OUTPATIENT SERVICES
The new lobby expansion was borne from the need to build a bridge connecting MHTN’s adjacent Eccles Outpatient Services Building and Primary Children’s Hospital.
